ideals of happiness people cherish,
and in what singular places they look
for this well-spring of their life.

a few seek it in the exploration of their own minds,
or in search for knowledge.

not much money, but a rich you;
not many things, but an open being,
available to millions of things.
- Osho

You moved your goods to market on roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory... Now look. You built a factory and it turned into something terrific or a great idea - God bless! Keep a hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along."
- Elizabeth Warren
